After the mother of an accident victim pleaded to the court for a long sentence, her wish was granted. Last September, an 18-year-old woman was found lying dead at the bottom of the stairs at her Houston, Texas apartment. Soon after, the woman’s boyfriend along with his roommate were arrested and charged with her murder. Authorities assumed from the outset of this case that there was suspicious activity surrounding her death, and that it did not appear to be an accident. The boyfriend finally admitted that they were involved in an argument right before the time of her death. Six months into the investigation, the boyfriend pleaded guilty and was given a large sentence of 35 years.
